5 Reasons a Shared Room in London may be right For You

5 Reasons a Shared Room in London may be right For You

Once you’ve arranged your English Language Course in London, you’ll probably want to arrange your accommodation as soon as possible At Polar Choice we offer single rooms, double rooms, twin rooms and shared rooms. Similar to our twin rooms, a shared room is a room for two with separate beds. Here’s five reasons we think a shared room might be the one for you.


1. Make friends instantly

What makes our shared rooms in London different from our twin rooms in London, is that a shared room is for international students coming to the UK on their own who would still like to share a bedroom. At Polar Choice we will endeavor to find you a roommate that you will get along with well, and most of our rooms are specifically male rooms to share or female rooms to share in London. This is a great option for people who get homesick or lonely easily, and for people who want to make friends instantly and start exploring the city.

2. Cut the Cost

Looking at accommodation in London can be quite shocking for international students that haven’t lived in the English capital before. It can be extremely expensive. But sharing a room equals sharing the cost. We know that international students have a budget to work to, so our shared rooms are extremely budget friendly. All utilities and bills are included in the price, too, so you have fewer worries in regards to money.

3. Convenient Locations

We have accommodation in over 30 locations around London, so we can give you options to meet your requirements. Whether you want to live right in the centre of city life, or you want to live in a quieter area, living in London is always convenient. Shopping, supermarkets, entertainment and public transport can be found on every corner, and you’re never far from infamous hotspots.

4. Cosy Living

Our shared room accommodation in London will be either in a shared house or flat/apartment. Other young and like-minded people will occupy the other bedrooms of the accommodation, but you will all have communal areas where you can all hang out together. Lounge and kitchens will be furnished for you, and some of our accommodations in London will include a dining room, garden and en suites.


Some of our accommodations in London can come as a package deal with one of our available English Language Courses in London. The English Language Courses available through Polar Choice are suitable for any language level, and are high quality courses delivered by accredited English language schools. Some of our packages include other extras such as a phone sim card, Oyster rail card, new linen, airport collection when you arrive and we can also help you to get you recruited in a work placement with one of our special packages.


With affordable accommodation difficult to find in this city, we at Polar Choice know that international students or travellers need to have readily available options that work to a budget. If you have a strict budget coming to London, and aren’t the kind of person that needs their own personal space too much, then a shared room could be perfect for you. You can browse our current availability on our Accommodation Search page, or if you’d like to speak to an advisor about your options, please give us a call or drop us an email, we’d be more than happy to help.
